LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- With all due respect to the teams left on the schedule, Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey sees no reason why the Titans cant win their remaining five games.They hope to begin steadying themselves in the playoff chase and start a streak when they visit the injury-riddled and suspension-laden Chicago Bears on Sunday.Who knows what can happen the next five games? Mularkey said. Its the hot team, the team that plays the most consistent is going to come out of this thing and be at the top. Is that nine wins? Is that 10 wins? I dont know. Right now, nobody knows what that is. I know this team still feels like we have a very good opportunity ahead of us.The Titans (5-6) likely will be facing Matt Barkley instead of Jay Cutler after Chicagos starting quarterback sustained a shoulder injury in last weeks loss to the New York Giants and is listed as doubtful to play this week.That was just another in long line of injuries that have engulfed the Bears (2-8). But along with their inability to stay healthy, theyve had a key player get suspended for four games for violating the leagues performance-enhancing drug policy each of the past two weeks. Linebacker Jerrell Freeman got punished on Monday . Last week, it was star receiver Alshon Jeffery.Theyre all difficult, coach John Fox said. Its a competitive game. As Ive mentioned before the injuries are a part of it whether its concussions or ankle injuries its a combative game. If you look around the league, I dont know that its happened quite as frequently around the league as it has for us, but you have to move on.The Titans, who trail Houston and Indianapolis in the AFC South, are trying to stay in the division race and hit their bye with a .500 mark.It would help if they got off to a strong start, something theyve struggled to do on the road . They are 1/3 away from home when trailing by double digits, including a 24-17 loss to the Colts last week in which they fell behind 21-0.We have to play four quarters, and I think weve only played one or two games where you can really say weve played aggressive through four quarters, said left tackle Taylor Lewan, who sprained his left knee against Indianapolis. And you need to do that the last five games.Here are some things to look for when they meet the Bears:BARKLEYS TURN: Barkley is expected to make his first career start. The former Southern California star has played in just five NFL games since he entered the league in 2013, including a rough outing for the Bears at Green Bay on Oct. 20. He came in after Brian Hoyer broke his left arm and went 6 of 15 for 81 yards and two interceptions.Cutler then got cleared to return after missing five games because of a sprained right thumb.DAZZLING MARIOTA: Titans second-year quarterback Marcus Mariota is putting together one of the best seasons in franchise history and ranks among the NFLs best this season.He has a 116.8 passer rating over the past seven games, second only to Tom Brady (123.3) in the NFL in that span. Mariota, the No. 2 overall pick in 2015 out of Oregon, leads the NFL with 19 TD passes over the past seven weeks. He just set a franchise record by throwing at least two TDs in seven straight games, breaking a mark previously held by Hall of Famer Warren Moon. For the season, Mariota is seventh in the league with 2,772 yards passing and fourth with 23 TD passes.RUN IT: With just about all of their main playmakers on offense injured or suspended, the Bears figure to rely on their run game. That could mean a busy afternoon for Jordan Howard -- second among NFL rookies in rushing with 682 yards.OFFENSIVE PRODUCTION: Tennessee is coming off its lowest scoring game since Sept. 25, when Oakland held the Titans to just 10 points. Since Oct. 6, the Titans are second in the NFL averaging 31.3 points per game, with only New England scoring more (31.7 points per game). For the season, Tennessee is eighth averaging 25.5 points per game. The Titans also lead the NFL inside the opponents 20, scoring touchdowns 75 percent of the time with 27 TDs on 36 drives.LEBEAUS D: With Dick LeBeau fully in charge of the defense this season, the Titans are tied for third with 30 sacks, just nine away from their total for all of last season. The Titans also are seventh against the run, giving up just 92.1 yards per game.---For more NFL coverage: and Grady Jarrett Jersey .com) - The Calgary Flames aim to bounce back from their first regulation home loss of the campaign on Friday night when they host a Detroit Red Wings club that they swept in three meetings a season ago. Taylor Gabriel Jersey . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. .

Since about May 2015, UFC light heavyweight Anthony Johnson has basically been telling everyone to chill out about Jon Jones.Yes, obviously, the two would fight at some point. Johnson didnt know the when and where of it, but that matchup was inevitable. And it would be on fire when it took place.But following Jones latest issues regarding the UFCs anti-doping policy, Johnson (21-5), who fights Glover Teixeira at UFC 202 on Aug. 20 at T-Mobile Arena, isnt sure anymore.Its just not gonna happen -- at this point, I know its not gonna happen, Johnson told It is what it is. Im moving forward. Everybody is moving forward. Im still shooting high and trying to do what I can in this sport. Im not focused on Jon anymore. And I can tell you Daniel Cormier, Glover -- theyre not focused on Jon, either. Nobody in this division is focused on Jon anymore. Thats a fact.Jones (22-1) is currently facing a potential two-year suspension for testing positive for estrogen blockers, prior to a scheduled fight against Cormier at UFC 200. His camp has stated it will appeal the failed test.Johnson was supposed to fight Jones last year, but Jones was arrested on a hit-and-run charge and pulled from the fight. Johnson went on to lose his next bout to Cormier, further postponing a potential matchup with Jones.An opportunity for the bout briefly opened again in April, when Cormier was forced out of a fight against Jones at UFC 197 -- but Johnson was unavailable to step in and replace him due to recent dental work.Its been disappointing the two havent met, as Johnson arguably represents the last real ccontender at 205 pounds whom Jones hasnt already beaten.dddddddddddd Knowing that, Johnson always felt confident the two would meet -- but Jones eligibility to fight (or lack of it) is out of his control.When the UFC 200 stuff first happened, I was just in shock with everything, Johnson said. Maybe for a couple of days or a week or two, I was just extremely disappointed. I was like, Damn, this is just really not gonna happen. I was looking forward to it just as much as anyone was. So, it does disappoint me.Im not mad at Jon. It doesnt affect me, but I feel bad for the man, you know? I wish the best for everybody. I wish he would have made a smarter decision. If he did take those estrogen blockers or whatever, I wish he was smarter than that. But Jon is his own man. It is what it is. Its on Jon, not me.When asked if he thought there was a chance hed still be around if Jones does indeed receive a full two-year suspension, Johnson, 32, didnt know.I aint trying to fight until Im 35, Johnson said. Im trying to make my money and go on to something different -- do bigger and better things with my life. Hell, I dont want to get punched in the head that damn much. Ive got other things I want to do.For now his focus is on the hard-hitting Teixeira (25-4), who is coming off a first-round knockout over Rashad Evans, Johnsons Blackzilians teammate and friend.This is going to be a fun fight, Johnson said. This is a fun fight for me and the fans. Glover is a brawler.
